Roll Call: Democrats Will Push Immigration Reform

On April 21, 2010 Roll Call reported "Democratic leaders are pushing ahead with plans to move comprehensive immigration reform legislation this year — even if it means punting on energy legislation until next Congress."

"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) agreed during a Tuesday afternoon meeting that a "moral imperative" exists to move immigration reform in 2010."

"During the meeting, Reid "reiterated his intention to move forward" this year on immigration reform, one aide said, adding that Pelosi agreed it is a top priority, even beyond energy legislation."
